Nov 16, 2012 - Home in Sequim

Well, we've been home for almost a week now and we still feel a bit overwhelmed by all there is left to do to settle into our apt. and a routine again. We do have most of the mail sorted and business related paperwork taken care of but still have not opened the packages we sent ahead from Europe. I need to find room to set up an area where I can file the papers, notes, maps, brochures, etc., that I'll be needing to caption our approximately 40,000 photos! (Estimate we put about 10% of our photos into our blog which has 4052 photos!) I also...

Sep 26, 2012 - Martha Lane Lavender

The Port Angeles/Sequim area is known for both wine making & lavender production. We used to grow lavender in our front yard and the backyard garden when we lived in Agoura Hills. It grew so quickly and needed no pesticides and very little water. Nancy always wondered what it would be like to be a lavender farmer. After all, our dozen or so plants were a cinch to grow! So we journeyed out to a real lavender farm in Sequim, WA. where we met the most wonderful couple, Mike & Julie, who own the Martha Lane Lavender Farms...

Sep 9, 2012 - Our New Address

We've been in Sequim (pronounced skwim) for almost a month. Our new address is 1045 S. 3rd Ave #33 Sequim, WA 98382. We will be keeping our cells for a little while longer. We've moved into a condo, plugged into a church (Dungeness Community Church) and started a business: N2 Solutions. You can pronounce it N squared or into Solutions. Pretty cool huh? Charles will be doing Microsoft Office Training and I will be helping people organize their photos then transfer them from paper to a digital format. Charles has already plugged into the...

Aug 24, 2012 - To Sequim

Aug. 24, 2012 This morning we packed up and drove west out of the park.  At Ashford we found a cool little cafe right beside a laundromat.  Efficient use of time!  And they had blackberry pie! Then after a few errands, we drove up the west side of Puget Sound, which is very pretty with much clearer, bluer water than the Seattle side.   We were happy to find a campground for the next two nights since it was Friday and we did not have reservations.  It was the last one in this rv park, and several had no vacancy signs out. And we have...

Summer Trip 2012

Aug 2, 2012 - Took the Port Townsend ferry across the sound. Stayed at Diamond Point east of Sequim, WA

Spent 7 days at Diamond Point RV Resort east of Sequim. Finally caught some more crab but I had gotten spoiled early on in Florence, OR and it hasn't been as easy as it first appeared.Went up to Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic Mountains south of Port Angeles. It was beautiful up there!

Jul 22, 2012 - Sunny Sequim?

The tourist brochures advertise Sequim as the sunny side of the Olympic Peninsula with less rainfall than other cities on the Peninsula. Ha! They lie – it is all a marketing ploy – and the locals continually joke about this misinformation. I’d say that 300 days without rain doesn’t mean 300 sunny days. Most of the time, the sun doesn’t shine. Of course there are exceptions like when you look out in the distance and see a small patch of blue sky. Locals refer to this phenomenon as “Sucker Sky.” They know that the weather gods are having...

Jul 16, 2012 - Chimacum to Sequim

We spent seven days hanging out at the Escapees Park in Chimacum and rarely left the park. We did the usual day-to-day stuff such as grocery shopping and doing our laundry. I found a dentist who had a cancellation and had a six month cleaning. Nothing exciting but as you know – some stuff you just gotta do! While at the SKP park we played pickleball a couple of mornings, attended an ice-cream social, a BBQ potluck and played pinochle one evening. The park has a DVD lending library and we watched "Men-in-Black-II" and the more somber "The...

Jul 7, 2012 - U-Pick Berries & More

We had another wonderful day taking Vickie and Sammy around Sequim. We noticed a sign saying they had U-Pick berries. We decided to stop and see what they had available. The loganberries were not ready yet, but the strawberries were all over the field ready for picking. Vickie and Sammy picked a box of about 2 pounds while Jerry and I took pictures and talked to the nice people who owned the farm. After the farm, we took them over to the John Wayne Marina at Sequim Bay and then the coast to see the Dungeness Lighthouse in the distance....

Jun 23, 2012 - Crescent Bay & More

We have been doing a lot of relaxing since our arrival in Sequim. :-) It feels good to be in one spot and be able to do some home cooking etc. We did manage a trip back to Hurricane Ridge, a drive to Crescent Beach and a quick tour of a few of the lavender farms. Sequim is known as the lavender capital of North America. They are having a Lavender Festival in July with people coming from all over the country. Our drive back to Hurricane Ridge was a foggy one, we didn't see a lot. We had a very tame bird fly to our car when we stopped, he...

Jun 17, 2012 - Sequim, WA

We hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day! We spent our day driving from Hoquiam, Wa to Sequim, Wa. It was a beautiful drive along the Hood Canal. We enjoyed watching all the fishermen and all the clamming going on as we drove by. Sequim is one of our favorite places to stay. The last time we were here we ended up staying for 4 months. :-) This is our first time visiting in the summer months, the flowers are in bloom and it's incredibly beautiful. We can't wait for Vickie and Sammy to arrive so we can take them exploring. Check back...
